Dear Readers, Sometimes it’s hard for those who provide help to the community to ask for it themselves. That begins to explain the reason behind our Catalog of Giving, a compendium of tangible items needed by 71 nonprofit institutions in the Mid-Willamette Valley. We asked the agencies to provide us with wish-list items that could be purchased by individuals, families, neighborhood associations, work colleagues, civic clubs, faith communities and businesses. We insisted that the items be tangible, something the donor could deliver directly to the nonprofit. Donations by check are always welcomed, but we wanted to create a more direct experience with the catalog. Our hope is that each fulfilled request will cause a celebration at the nonprofit, a moment of shared joy for the giver

and receiver. We’ve made it simple to participate. Each item described in the catalog includes a direct number for donors to call. As each request is filled, the Statesman Journal will record the success and post an update in our wish list database at StatesmanJournal.com/Giving. It is our hope that every wish will be granted by Dec. 31. Given the generosity of the community, it’s a pretty sure bet. We hope you enjoy looking through the catalog as we take time at Thanksgiving to recall how blessed we are to live in a land of freedom and opportunity. Thank you for considering this chance to help those who help. — Michael Davis, Executive Editor
